Herbert George Wells 1921 Census

In summer 1921 H.G. Wells was living at Little Easton, Little Canfield, Essex

He had a very interesting international household of visitors (ones to explore this weekend) and some new servants, not the familiar names found in the 1911 Census.

WW1 and the Spanish flu pandemic had happened over the last ten years.


A little disappointed that my Find My Past subscription only seems to give me a small discount on transcripts and separate charges for the census scan page.

    1. WFH quick coffee break – Bit surprised that I still have to pay 1921 Census access, even if discounted but should be interesting looking at these people as wellthrough the m any other records and web research.
      Sadly – Does not go into such detail of what they did on the census day such as “played the Floor Game” but in the aftermath of WW1, this is highly unlikely. “Little Wars” was a great fun imaginative idea, stunted by tragic circumstances.


  1. How fascinating…a very diverse group of house guests indeed. I had no idea that these old census had such a level of detail. Looking forward to seeing what more you discovere too. Regards


  2. Truly international but he was a worldwide known author.

    Family / local and military history via the census and genealogy sites is a whole new rabbit hole to disappear down for a very very long stretches of time but fascinating social history.
